How to check my document for plagiarism

If you are a Grammarly Premium, Grammarly for Business, or Grammarly for Education user, you can check your document for plagiarism. To do that, open any document and click the Plagiarism option in the lower-right corner:


When your text is checked for plagiarism, Grammarly will suggest citation data to create a reference in accordance with three different formats:

  • Modern Language Association (MLA) 
  • American Psychological Association (APA) 
  • The Chicago Manual of Style

Simply click the corresponding link on a suggestion card, and we will automatically redirect you to the online resource that will provide general models for citing your text.

For more information on why plagiarism matters and how to avoid it, please see this article from the Grammarly blog.
